I have just started taking steps with the aim of changing my existing standard loan to a BTL Skipton Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I need a solicitor for this. I spoke to the same Ulceby conveyancing practitioner who acted on my behalf when I originally purchased the house. The pricing estimate provided of £450 plus VAT has shocked me as its a refinance than a sale or purchase.

My husband and I are buying a studio flat in Ulceby. At the time of instructing our property lawyer, we were told they were on all mainstream mortgage company panels. Our financial adviser called yesterday to advise that they are not on the Kent Reliance approved list. Were it to be true, what should we do? Should we just pick a different conveyancer that is on their approved list or should we cover the costs for separate representation, with Kent Reliance appointing their own approved solicitor.
When purchasing a property with mortgage finance it is normal for the buyer’s lawyers to also act for the mortgage company. In order to act for a bank or building society a conveyancing practitioner has to be on that lender's conveyancing panel. An application has to be made by the property lawyer to the lender to become a member of the lender's panel and there are increasingly strict criteria which the conveyancing practitioner has to meet. Some mortgage companies now insist their panel members to be part of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme. Your solicitor should contact Kent Reliance to discover if they can apply for membership of their conveyancing panel, but if that is not viable they will instruct their own solicitors to act. You are not legally obliged to appoint a law firm on Kent Reliance's conveyancing panel and you may continue to use your own Ulceby solicitors, in which case your legal fees may increase, and it may delay matters as you are adding another conveyancing practitioner into the mix.
